Mrs. Moses Yerxa, a highly respected resident of Keswick (York Co.) died at her home last night age 71 years. Her illness was of a brief duration. A week ago last Thursday she was in splendid health, but shortly after partaking of a hearty supper, she was seized with distressing pains around the region of the heart. Despite all that could be done for her, she grew gradually worse until last night when death ensued.

Among the surviving nephews is H.D. Yerxa of the famous firm of Cobbs, Bates & Yerxa, Boston. Two other nephews are Ludlow Yerxa and Barclay Yerxa, well known grocers. A husband, seven sons and one daughter survive her. Three of the sons, Benjamin Yerxa, Cook Yerxa and Dr. yerxa are now residents of Boston. The three of them were at their mother's bedside when she died. The daughter is Mrs. Gilford DUNPHY of Keswick. The funeral will take place tomorrow. Undertakers Adams & Price will have charge of the arrangements.
